As Snow Eagle grabbed Si Luo’s hand, the girl looked up at him closely and shrunk back to herself before dipping her head when she saw the long scar around Snow Eagle’s neck.
She was scared and it was normal.
The scar around Snow Eagle’s neck was deep and it was because of this deep scar that took points off the man’s good looks.
In terms of appearance, Snow Eagle looked the most charming among the four commanders. Even then, beautiful girls did not dare approach him because of his scar.
“You don’t have to sleep under a bridge. From today on, you won’t be living the life you used to have,” Yun Jian spoke up next.
Once she said that, Si Luo looked up gratefully at her.
“You don’t have to look at me like this.”
What Yun Jian did not continue to say was “I’m only helping you because I see a profit I can reap’.
Yun Jian was not a saint. If it were not for a potential profit, she honestly would do nothing even if Si Luo got on her knees in front of her.
It was not that she was brutal. This was simply how the world was. No one would coddle you when you were not strong yourself.
“Thank you!” Si Luo thanked her anyway. If one looked closely, there was a hint of tear in her eyes.
Yun Jian nodded but said nothing else.
Ultimately, Ning Xia’s mother prepared a room for Si Luo.
Ning Xia’s family was wealthy. Their rooms were all suites with attach bathroom. It felt like a hotel room.
Seeing how Si Luo looked rather pitiful, Ning Xia’s mother personally taught her how to prepare a bath. Yun Jian stood beside to watch the woman teach the girl as well.
Si Luo then had a warm bath and changed into Qing You’s clothes. Both of them were similar in height but Si Luo was a little thinner than Qing You as she was almost bony. Qing You’s clothes were slightly larger on Si Luo but they fitted alright.
By the time they were done, Snow Eagle and others had long turned in for the night.
‘The next morning, Yun Jian woke up early since their plan was to take the cruise to Zhou Island from Ning City’s port.
Qing You and Si Luo were already up when Yun Jian woke up. When she went downstairs, she saw the two of them sitting together and chatting; it looked like they got along quite well.
‘After Si Luo cleaned herself of the dirt and changed into Qing You’s clothes yesterday, she no longer looked like a beggar. Even Yun Jian could not help doing a double take at her. As she was clean, the faint minty scent Si Luo naturally exuded smelled stronger while her doll-like face was beautiful.
Even Ning Xia’s mother could not help praising, “What a delicate looking young lady!”
Ning Xia’s mother, Qin Yirou and Mrs. Yang had made breakfast together in the morning.
‘When Si Yi, Snow Eagle and the others came downstairs, the three commanders halted their steps in surprise at what Si Luo looked like now. Snow Eagle, especially, did not expect Si Luo who had changed into a white dress to be so beautiful.
Si Yi was unfazed. No prettier girl could win his Xiao Jian. He was not even interested to glance at Si Luo as he went straight to Yun Jian and held her hand.
“Wow! What a pretty girl!” Little Yun Zhu cried when he came downstairs with Duan Li and Duan Ya, and saw Si Luo, wanting to run toward her. He also spread both of his arms like he wanted to give Si Luo a hug.
“Hello, pretty jiejie!”
It was just that Yun Zhu saw his own sister, Yun Jian, standing nearby halfway through his jog before he felt himself being lifted. When he looked up, he saw Snow Eagle’s glowering face…
